I enjoy conveying the essence of my subject matter through my works in watercolor, pastel, oil, mixed media and alcohol inks. The beauty I find in my everyday life constantly inspires me to create. And living in northern Colorado, I have no shortage of breathtaking and inspirational landscapes to paint. While working a 20-year career as a magazine editor and graphic designer, I used to devote my free time to my passion: painting. Now, I enjoy spending my days turning my family's adventures into works of art.
I strive to achieve a loose, impressionistic feeling in my landscapes, cityscapes, abstracts, and portrayals of wildlife. I combine my creative use of texture, color and design to evoke emotion and a strong sense of imagery in my paintings. I enjoy the Colorado outdoors as well as travels to such places as Scotland, Ireland, Europe, the Caribbean and Mexico, and find inspirations in all locations. I continue to take classes and workshops. I am represented by the Art Center of Estes Park in Estes Park, CO; Madison + Main Gallery in Greeley, CO; Homestead Fine Arts Gallery in Berthoud, CO; and here on Fine Art America. My award-winning work has been juried into numerous international, national, and local art exhibitions. I am a signature member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and the Colorado Watercolor Society, and an associate member of the American Impressionist Society.
